On twitter I have been asked about seed mixes to create chicken forage cover.
"Hello, am looking for some advice, am re-seeding an area for chicken forage + wondered if there are recommended seed mixes?" From http://twitter.com/getmyhandsdirty
I found this on the internet http://www.thegrassseedstore.co.uk/2500-poultry-grazing-pasture-p-185.html
Turf Perennial Ryegrass lolium perenne
Strong Fescue festuca rubra
Sheeps Fescue festuca longifolia
Chewing Fescue festuca rubra commutata
Bentgrass agrostis capillaris
Lucerne medicago lupilina
Birdsfoot Trefoil lotus corniculatus
White Clover trifolium repens
Red Clover trfolium pratense
Mixed forage herbs = Chicory, Burnet, Sheeps Parsley, Sheeps Burnet,Yarrow
Let me know if you have any advice about forage for hens.
